5:30 am
highway 13 and later the caldecott tunnel. no major slowing but you will probably have a traffic break over the next few. i'll warn you if they tell me what's going on. likely they will just clear it. >> thank you, mike. >> right now police investigating an overnight shooting in south san jose. bob redell is live with all of the latest developments. good morning. what is happening out there? >> reporter: good morning to you, jon. police just left the scene and they are trying to find the shooter. couple things that make this case tricky. they don't know if this was random or these people knew each other. they know it took place on this sidewalk along hayes avenue. part of the problem is it took place after midnight when most people are asleep. while yes, there were people who heard the gun shot, who came out to assist, to call 911, as far as police know right now there was nobody who actually saw the
5:31 am
shooting take place. perhaps the only witness is the victim. he is a 35-year-old man from san jose who is in the hospital right now. he was shot multiple times but remarkably he is expected to survive. again t shooter, suspect, whoever this person is, is still out there. police are trying to identify him and find him. or her. reporting live in south san jose, "today in the bay." >> oakland city leaders say it's a shocking example of how far people have to go to protect themselves. comments after a taco truck operator was forced into a gun battle with an armed robber. surveillance video shows the flash of gun fire early yesterday morning. a spokesperson says that more and more food truck owners are arming themselves with weapons and wearing bullet proof vests. >> the new jobs numbers have been released. scott mcgrew sin our newsroom
5:32 am
now. good morning, scott. >> good morning. they are spectacular again, tradition i think i should keep i couldn't telling the piece of paper. 243,000 jobs added in the last month. that drops the unemployment rate to 8.3%, that's a spectacular number, much higher than we were expecting. forecasters were looking in the tens of thousands of jobs. is some of that due to the time of year? could be. but it is something that we are not going to sneeze at. as i tell you each time it's more important the big number plus 243, than it is the unemployment rate. but as president obama talks at the fire house today you can bet he is going to bring up the declining unemployment rate. we've got going down from 8.5 to 8.3 in the last month. another spectacular, if unexpected, job number. >> it's the right direction. thank you, scott. 5:32. san francisco sheriff ross

5:44 am
to sea. that means we'll see sunshine, slightly warmer conditions, and it will be breezy at times throughout the day like it was yesterday. that breeze will have a windchill factor this morning so you need the jacket but you're peeling it off by noon. through saturday, the warm-up continues, continue to climb a few degrees in most cities across the bay area. that's when we'll start touching on the 70s, even in places like livermore. so, for today, 68 degrees in morgan hill. 63 milpitas. about 64 degrees in danville and san francisco holding on to 60s as well. the next three days we climb, then the changes arrive monday into tuesday, clouds increase as that system moves closer to the california coastline. it moves onshore tuesday into wednesday. bringing about pretty good looking rainfall totals. i think we'll see upwards of a half inch in the north bay. around a quarter in the south bay and maybe, just maybe a foot of snow above 6,000 feet in tahoe. we'll keep telling you what we
